When I was 15, for one thanksgiving I went on a trip with my best friend's family to his grandfather's house. One afternoon his grandfather took us to an outdoor range to zero all his rifles to go hunting not to mention it'd be fun. Me and my friend at one lane with his dad while his grandfather was at the next with some other family members. My friend was looking through the scope of the rifle and he had his finger in the trigger guard. I told him he shouldn't do that but I distinctly remember being annoyed because he wasn't speaking clearly on purpose. He made this "what?" face at me and I thought it'd be hilarious to pretend to speak to him but just barely pronounce the words so he could barely make out what I said. I started mouthing words and my friend was really confused. He decided to take off his ear muffs. That instant the person in the next lane fired his rifle. Long story short, my friend was practically deaf the entire time and to this day he still thinks I was really speaking to him but that he just couldn't hear me. He got chewed out by his grandfather and I remember him yelling "WELL OF COURSE YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND HIM YOU'RE WEARING EAR MUFFS WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO DO" and just going ON and On and ON about hear loss and how he lost his and I was just like "ooooops" don't do that next time. I definitely do not horse around on the gun range anymore. When I'm at the range I'm all about zoning in and prepping my mind for the kill.
